Halloween Centerpiece

I am revisiting one of my more popularpost of last year......Just in time for decorating!

After seeing this done on Martha Stewart, I knew I wanted to do it for my centerpiece. Going through her website to purchase items, it seemed a little out of my price range. But, after purusing through one of my favorite stores the Dollar Tree, I found they had all the makings for this centerpiece, except for the cheap 98 cent black paint I had at home already. And the item that put me over, was the Martha Glitter, which I found at AC Moore with a 50% off coupon. And the glitter goes a long, long way. So I will be able to use it for other projects too! You can check out Martha's how to here.
